Memories of Bellagio

Memories of Bellagio
16 x 20 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Been working on some larger paintings lately which have been taking more days to paint, so haven't been posting as much, but don't worry I'm still painting away.

Finished this one this week. Memories of Bellagio, which is a beautiful town on the shore of Lake Como, Italy known as the "Pearl of Lake Como". It's an absolutely enchanting, romantic place. A small town which seems to be mostly shops, hotels and restaurants and a few gardens near the lake shore area surrounded by lush foliage and with the alps in the distance. From there it's a short boat ride to Varenna on the other side of the lake - another charming place.  And you can hop on and off the boat at several towns up and down the lake.

  If you haven't been there yet, this might be one for your "bucket list".  It's just a one hour train ride north of Milan. I hope to go back this September before my workshop on nearby Lake Garda.
